Introducing Miss Maddison Renae Jackman! weighing in at 5 1/2 #, 18" long, arrived yesterday afternoon.
Because of the age of her mom and previous complications, 3 times weekly monitoring was neccessary for the safety of both Mom and Baby. Gwen was able to carry her till the last 2-3wks of third trimester. Monitoring yesterday morning showed the placenta had died and the baby had lost weight, so a c-section was performed immediately.

Mama and baby
What a miracle! Baby is just lovely and very healthy with a good healthy appetite. Mama had been battling near pnemonia for the last week and can now be given antibiotics for it. I am so full of gratefulness to the Lord for His mercy and goodness!
